This is very good but I think I have found a bug where automating a

Hi all:

I was told about CLIX, a utility that does a lot of what TinkerTool, 
Xupport, et al. do.  But, it does so by using command line instructions 
and is set up to teach one how to do expand on its 250 built in 
options.  It is also way cool and it's FREE. I'm using it now and have

investigating your system status, for cleaning out your junk files, for 
getting at secret settings for the Dock, the Finder, and all of your 
most used applications - and all sorted for easy access, any way you 

The author of this utility also has lots of other items (not all free), 
and those of you who are NextStep fans will probably find much to your 
liking at the webstie:
